Article by Mike Brearley in the Observer thoughtfully discusses the Pietersen situation. Not sure exactly what he's done but it doesn't look like there'll be a quick resolution, which is unfortunate. Brearley had already pointed out before the last Ashes that Pietersen needs his confidence boosting (see previous post).
South Africa deserve to take over from England as number one test team (see previous post). Enjoyed seeing two days of the match at Lords.
